Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

The recipe Make Ahead Quiche could satisfy your Mediterranean craving in approximately 45 minutes. For 93 cents per serving, you get a main course that serves 8. One serving contains 307 calories, 14g of protein, and 21g of fat. 1 person has made this recipe and would make it again. A mixture of half and half, dash of pepper, flour, and a handful of other ingredients are all it takes to make this recipe so tasty. To use up the eggs you could follow this main course with the Rose Levy Beranbaum's Chocolate Tomato Cake with Mystery Ganache as a dessert. All things considered, we decided this recipe deserves a spoonacular score of 28%. This score is not so tremendous. Try Make-Ahead Tomato-Croissant Quiche, Crustless Quiche to Make Ahead and Freeze, and Make-ahead Bacon, Corn & Tomato Quiche for similar recipes.

Sparkling Wine, Bordeaux, and Champagne are my top picks for Quiche. Even if you aren't making mimosas, sparkling wine is great with eggs for two reasons. One, if you're eating eggs early in the day, sparkling wine has less alcohol. Secondly, it cleanses the palate, which is important since yolk is known to coat the palate. The Guillette-Brest, Brut Millesime with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 44 dollars per bottle.

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, toss the flour with the grated cheese. Evenly spread the cheese over the bottom of the pie crust. Top the cheese with the diced ham. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, half and half, salt, pepper and dry mustard. Stir in the green onions. Pour the egg mixture over the ham and cheese.
  2. Cover the unbaked quiche with plastic wrap, then with foil, sealing the edges well. Place the prepared quiche in the freezer. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Do not thaw the quiche! Remove the foil and plastic wrap. Place the foil around the edges of the crust to prevent burning. Place the frozen quiche in the oven and bake for about 1 hour, or until the filling is set and the crust is golden brown.
  3. To cook the quiche immediately (without freezing first), preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you're following a vegan diet (or avoiding dairy), make sure the brand of dough you buy is suitable for your diet! Always read the labels carefully. Otherwise you can make your own from scratch and be 100% sure.

  • You can easily swap half of the white flour in most recipes for whole wheat flour to add some fiber and protein. It does result in a heavier dough, so for cookies, cakes, etc., you might try swapping in whole wheat pastry flour.

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Confused by the different types of cream — Most differences arise from the fat content of the cream, and whether or not the cream has been "soured" by adding lactic acid bacteria to give it a tangy flavor.

Green Tips

  • Did you know you can freeze shredded cheese? If you don't finish it up, don't throw it out!
